Metal analysis techniques
Published:  24 February, 2014

The need for material verification is an increasingly important issue across a range of industries. The chemical analysis of metallic materials is one such procedure and it involves determining the precise elemental constituents of a test piece, to establish that it meets the required specification, to overcheck bought-in stock, to identify unknown material or to provide evidence in a product failure investigation.

The chemical analysis department of KEIGHLEY LABS offers an independent, bespoke service to aerospace manufacturers, the energy sector, rail industry, foundries, plating companies, galvanisers, component importers and general engineers, providing a fast turnaround and precise material verification. In addition to classic wet chemistry, it employs advanced inductively coupled plasma, atomic absorption and glow discharge spectroscopy to ensure the optimum method for a particular application.
